HCM CITY —
Thach, 19, an established model from the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Hau Giang, was one of 10 finalists last year before organisers concluded she was underage.
"So this year I made the best preparations [possible] for all rounds," she said.
Tinh, the male winner, remained under the radar in the early rounds before suddenly bursting through to grab the crown.
He is a student at the HCM City Movie and Theatre College.
Thach and Tinh were voted the Favourite Fashion Model by the public.
The second prize in the contest was won in the men's and women's sections by Pham Thi Thuy Linh and Hoang Gia Ngoc, and the third prizes by Pham Anh Thu and Le Khoi Nguyen.
Twenty men and women finalists each appeared on the catwalk for ao dai, swimsuit, and evening dress rounds.
They also had to face a talent and quiz rounds.
The event, produced by HCM City Television and Cat Tien Sa Company, is organised by Thoi Trang Tre (New Fashion) magazine.
This year it attracted thousands of amateur and professional models between the ages of 18 to 25 who took part in elimination rounds in Ha Noi and HCM City last August. — VNS
